We didn't want to spend a lot on fancy hotel, so we chose this cottage style inn for a very reasonable price. I didn't see many pictures on their website so I was kinda worried.., but when we arrived we found everything's just great:) The room is clean and tidy, and the location is perfect. We booked a kitchenette which...

Rooms are clean, comfortable and well equiped. The owners are very nice and easy to work with. Prices are more than fair. We'll be visiting later in the summer...can't wait!

My husband & I visit the Inn to just relax and enjoy peace & quiet several times a year and have done so for the past 9 years. We've stayed in most of the rooms, with or without kitchen, and the rooms are always super clean w/comfy beds, treats on your pillow, coffee maker, microwave and good kitchen amenities. The...

I love this place! I stay here several times a year and have for many years. I never think about staying anywhere else. The rooms are clean, comfortable and charming and its always this way. I really like the smaller size of the motel (there's not hundreds of rooms with cars and lots of noise) and you will feel like...

I was surprised to read what I thought was an insulting and unreasonable review recently and I wanted to post my experiences. We stayed at the Mallard House Inn during last April and May. Because of my husband's business, we needed to stay in Lakeport for a couple of months. After we stayed at one motel briefly, we were uncomfortable...

Front desk was a train wreck. The lady there had limited english and when there was a problem she would say the she did not understand. Check your credit card receipt before you sign it, they will try to rip you off. Smallest room that I have ever seen, plus all of the dead bugs in the bathroom. Probably the...

MALLARDHOUSE, Owner at Mallard House, responded to this review

We were very distressed to see this negative review from this guest. We strive very hard to make all of our guests comfortable here. We are a cottage style inn and all of our rooms are different in size and accomodations. Their car club booked the reservations for them for the three night weekend for a smaller room with a...

My stay at the Mallard house in Lakeport more than fullfilled my expectations. Although I have stayed there in the past, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed coming home to a lakefront resort with a family atmosphere just minutes from my downtown business appointments. I look forward to my next visit.

I spent Monday through Friday in the Mallard Inn, almost like a reverse commute. I am a health care professional and needed to take my timein finding a rental, because I am quite particular on where I would like to live. All in all I spent 10 weeks there in this fashion, and would have continued if I had not...

“Ask for a room with a kitchen. Some rooms are just sleeping rooms (small). #10 has a big deck facing toward, but not on, the lake.”
